Remote Desktop: An authentication error has occurred. – This could be due to CredSSP encryption oracle remediation.

Hi everyone,

I ran into an auth issue with remote desktop today:

An authentication error has occurred.
The function requested is not supported.
Remote computer: XXXX

This could be due to CredSSP encryption oracle remediation.
For more information, see hhtps://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=866660

The solution is to add the May 2018 Windows Security Update on both the remote and local machines. If that’s not possible a registry entry can be added to the local machine to circumvent the issue. This can be done by running the following command in a command prompt as administrator:

REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\CredSSP\Parameters\ /v AllowEncryptionOracle /t REG_DWORD /d 2

You can also add the entry manually via regedit.

The cause is actually because of a security update in windows. If either the remote or local machine has the update and the other does not the error is triggered. There’s more info available on the following page: https://github.com/stascorp/rdpwrap/issues/480

Module build failed: Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open – Windows

Hi everyone,

I’ve been mucking around with React over the last couple of days. I ran into the following error while trying to build:

Module build failed: Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open ‘c:\…Form.js’
at Error (native)

It took a while to sort this one out but I eventually came across a solution on github:

npm rebuild node-sass

Thanks to xzyfer for posting in the following github thread: https://github.com/sass/node-sass/issues/1579#issuecomment-227661284

There’s a whole heap of info in that thread so be sure to check it out.

Thanks,
Chris

Windows 10 – Search Not Working

Hey everyone,

I’ve just upgraded to windows 10, however the start menu search has been randomly breaking. It just seems to load indefinitely. Thankfully there’s an easy fix:

- Start task manager (ctrl + shift + esc)
- Click more details
- Under the processes heading look for Search (green icon under background processes)
- Click on Search and hit end task

The Search process should now restart and start working. If not you can restart it manually using file > run.
